Just So You Know

Let me start this by saying if at any time you read a message that compels you to a response, by all means... feel free to continue the learning. You DO NOT have to leave your real name or any name for that matter. When you click "post a comment" or however it reads, you have 3 options. Once on the actual comments page, you'll see prior replies as well. Then there's the 'leave a comment' field. Under that are CAPTCHA and 'choose an identity' (name) options. CAPTCHA is designed to slam SPAM as well as let me know a human is posting vs. a computer generated response. Again, I do not consume beef nor pork so SPAM is not welcomed. Even a photograph of it bothers me. Ok, not really but you get my point and hence you will see the moderation message when you've finalized your post. The identity/name options are as follows:

1) Log-in using (drop down menu for those registered with those services)

2) Nickname and URL - allows you to choose any name and/or link your site to it

3) Anonymous (you can use it but I still have the right to decide if it gets published publicly or not - GOOD FOR ME - YAY!!)

So there ya go. Send me $49.99 if you use these instructions in your own BlogSpot. Cash, cashier's check, money order and Western Union accepted 24/7. :D

Almostest Free

Yeah, I created a new word and I'm damn proud of it. So, as you can tell I'm stockpiling (getting loads of one product for future use) and it's Sure deodorant right now. I have a total of 5... yes, FIVE - including the one I'm using. TMI I know but today I went to Walgreen's and there's were 2/$5. I had a $1.50 coupon for each out of the Walgreen's lil book and then 2 $1 coupons printed online. All I had to pay was .30 tax for the 2 3.2 bonus size bottles. Sounds good, eh? Then I picked up another A&H Laundry detergent for .99. They normally charge $6.99 for 1 64oz and right now they have a 4 day sale on it for $1.99. I was Armed and I Hammered down a $1 from A&H website and whallah!!

I feel so good when I can get good bargins like this. Plus, I also picked up 3/.99 each mini First Aid kits out of CVS. I had a buy 2 for $3 coupon which gave me them free. YEAH ME!! Now here's the best one of all and with heaps of thanks to MSM's Blog for every single savings, no doubt. Safeway has a Kelloggs sale right now and if you buy 5 select varieties, they'll increase your discount to $5 off the total of the five boxes. So here's how it went down. I picked up 5 boxes and head to the counter. She rings them and after coupons and some bonus markdowns I found, the total was a wee high. So, I go over and proceed to figure out what went wrong. I see I purhcased one cereal at $4.99 which was 17oz box and not a 12oz. Then I see the Sugar Pops - MY OTHER FAVORITE CEREAL - was not apart of the 5/$5 off promotion. So I had Mr. J void that cereal transaction and start fresh all over again. So, he gives me back almost $15, re-rings the right cereals and I, when all said and done, hand him $2.45 for 5 boxes of cereal. How? Safeway's Kelloggs sale is from $2.29 (Rice Krispies, Corn & Frosted Flakes - I think) to $2.79. I had 5/$1 coupons printed from online - $1 for each box. Don't forget that $5 deal and there you go.

Some Safeway's do not accept internet printable coupons, so call PRIOR to using. But, can you imagine walking out of any chain store with 5 boxes of cereal for $2.45? I bragged to every, even the cashier who originally rang me up, the store person who re-rang my stuff plus Mom's. I am so thrifty. Or is that frugal?? Off to MSM's to see what she has next...


  1. LOL, this blog made me laugh! Who doesn't love free stuff...or cheaper things? I'm guilty at that...and more! :)

  2. We've gone from "mental recession" to "mental "depression" now Gabby and we have to survive "by any means necessary". Thank you for laughing because at least I know you're smiling about something positive!!

  3. Ahahahahahaha!! It'll wear off real soon Jervis!!
